Get the answer RCXDerp May 15, 2011 7:17:03 AM Okay... reseated stock cooler and checked the thermal paste now its idling 30-40C, by the way when I hit 94C it was when I was rendering HD video. ghnader hsmithot a b à CPUs May 15, 2011 7:20:25 AM But it doesnt render video at that high temps.What software temp monitor are you using? Try to rerender the video to see if there is a difference in temps.. RCXDerp May 15, 2011 7:39:47 AM I was using Speedfan 4.43 and Core Temp 0.99.8 the temps increase to 65ish when I try to re-render and I guess I can deal with those temps. ghnader hsmithot a b à CPUs May 15, 2011 7:42:44 AM core temps are much more better temp monitor compared to speedfan. So does coretemp read 65c when you render? RCXDerp May 15, 2011 7:52:37 AM It reads 70-75 while im rendering on core temp ghnader hsmithot a b à CPUs May 15, 2011 7:56:27 AM I guess it should be ok.Some people complained IBT with a i7 2600k and got up to 80c. Idle temps also should be around 30~40 depending on room temperature. So yeah your temps should be good.
